Originally under the name Dollar Brand, his music has long tracked the turbulence of his homeland, and now reflects its current optimism through music of great hope and reflective soulfulness.

Venue

Henry Westons Big Top

The Henry Westons Big Top is a purpose built venue situated at the heart of Jazz in the Gardens. Constructed in the classic style of a circus big top, the arena is fully lined and offers tiered seating. High quality sound and lighting production enhance the Festival experience inside this atmospheric jazz venue. Each year, the Big Top and Jazz Arena venues play host to a vast array of acclaimed headliners and rising stars throughout the Cheltenham Jazz Festival.

Building on the success of last year’s Festival, the Henry Westons Big Top capacity will increase by 50% to 2,000 seats in 2019, enabling more people to enjoy the most popular events and offering better sightlines to the stage.
